LOS ANGELES (Feb. 19, 2016) — AECOM, a premier, fully integrated global infrastructure firm, announced today that it has been named to Fortune magazine’s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies for the second consecutive year.

From an annual survey conducted by Fortune and global management consulting firm Korn Ferry Hay Group, top executives, directors and financial analysts identify the companies with the strongest reputations within their industries and across industries.
